Classic Celebrations At RHS Chelsea 2019 – read more about our involvement with this year’s show, and learn a little more about the materials we have on display at this year’s show.

You know a garden at RHS Chelsea is particularly special when, on the opening day, the BBC spend considerably more time interviewing the designer than expected. Schedules were thrown out left and right as the cameras roamed the Greenfingers Garden upstairs and down.
